Note clutched in his hand, Harry ran toward the barrier wall between platforms nine and ten, skidding to a stop in the middle of platform 9 ¾ . Students milled about, some hugging their parents goodbye for the semester, some joking and laughing. Mostly that was Fred, George, and Lee. Apparently they had animated a little rubber spider and were going about dropping it on girl’s shoulders, being there to comfort them when they screamed and turned to the nearest guy for help. Sneaky bastards.

Harry smirked and moved toward the train, carefully stowing away his things and taking Hedwig’s cage up to an empty compartment. At least he had a place saved for himself, Ron, and Hermione. The train’s horn blared through the platform, signaling they had just ten minutes to finish their goodbyes and get on the train.

“Gotta find Ron and Hermione.” Harry muttered to himself, forgoing the steps down the train all together and just jumping down to the platform. It didn’t take him long to spot the family with the flaming red hair, and he grinned, rushing over and nearly jumping on Ron’s back. Said Weasly let out a rather unmanly yelp, spinning around to glare at Harry.

“Not funny, mate. If my mum weren’t here, I’d pound you.”

“Oh no! I’m so scared!” Harry teased, before a soft ‘ahem’ made him look down to Hermione, “No I didn’t forget you, Hermione.”

The girl smirked and shifted the bag over her shoulder.

“I would hope so, though I would be happy to leave you and your boyfriend alone if you wish.” She grinned up to the both of them, but it broke into a scowl when Harry pinched her.

“Not boyfriends.”

“Oh I beg to differ on that one, Potter.”

Harry tensed when he heard that oh so familiar and oh so loathed voice, looking over his shoulder with a glare to Malfoy.

“Sod off. You wouldn’t even know what that would be like, Malfoy.”

“I’m fairly sure I could hold my own in that area.” Draco drawled, eyes turning down to his fingernails as he examined them in a bored manner.

“Not like I’d want to find out. Don’t you have some first year to scar for life?”

“Already taken care of it.”

“Glad to hear it, now if you’ll excuse us.” Hermione cut into the argument, frowning at both Harry and Draco.

“The mudblood decided to speak! Damn I was hoping you’d lost the ability, and I could go migraine free for at least one day…”

Hermione glared at him and Ron put his hand on her shoulder.

“Perhaps you could return the favor, Malfoy, and drown yourself. Perhaps we could get through this school year without committing murder.”

Draco raised a slender eyebrow, the smirk still playing on his lips.

“Think you could really do it, Weasly? Think you could really kill me?”

Ron’s hand slipped into his pocket and Harry knew the other was gripping his wand.

“Don’t waste the energy on him, Ron. Let’s go.” he murmured, hand pressing to Ron’s shoulder as Hermione grabbed his hand to turn him away.

“It’s time to go anyway…”

The train had given its blast of two short whistles, signaling they would be leaving in five minutes. Ron reluctantly turned away and moved with Hermione up to the train, glaring over his shoulder from time to time. Harry remained behind, drawing the note he’d received a few days ago out of his pocket.

“What? You gonna do it for him, Potter?” Draco smirked, crossing his arms over his chest.

“No you arrogant prick. I want to know what the hell this is.” Harry shoved the note into the other’s hands, and Draco scowled. After a second he unrolled it and read through the note.

“I didn’t write this.” Draco said easily, flicking it back to Harry, who caught it and glared.

“What do you mean you didn’t write it? It’s in your handwriting, signed by you…”

“Yeah, sure, Potter. You’re good at copying handwriting. What makes you think I’d ever write anything to you?”

There was a pause between both of them and then Harry turned away.

“Right.” He boarded the train, leaving Malfoy to stand there with a scowl on his face. He didn’t stop moving until he sat down in their compartment, glad to see that no one had come and tried to move his stuff out of it.

“What did he say? Why did you stay behind?” Hermione asked, frowning in concern up at Harry. He simply handed her the note and plopped down next to Ron, looking out the window.

The cabin was quiet while Hermione read and then she gave an even more troubled frown.

“You asked him about it?”

“He said he didn’t write it.”

Hermione’s eyes scanned over the note again before handing it over to Ron for him to read.

“It’s his handwriting…” she said, moving to sit down in front of Harry.

“I mentioned that as well and he just claimed I was good at copying.”

Hermione fell silent as Ron read it, the red-head handing it back to Harry.

“It’s a prank. It’s gotta be. There’s no way Malfoy of all people would want to make amends for any of the shit he’s pulled on us. Specially you, Harry.”

Harry frowned and leaned against the window.

“I know that, but…if he’s already pulling this kind of stuff now, this year will be hell.”

Hermione sighed and frowned at both of them, “Would you two lighten up and stop being so depressed? It’s not like we’re going to see him every day. Not to mention Ron and I are prefects, so he can’t really do anything to us. Or you.”

Ron raised an eyebrow and smirked a bit at her.

“Are you saying you’ll put your good reputation on the line to save our asses?”

“I’ll put my reputation on the line to make sure Malfoy knows his place. There’s a difference.”

Harry grinned, “Oh Hermione…I think…no I know that has to be the sweetest thing you’ve ever done for either of us.” he teased, nudging Ron, who made a kissing face.

“Oh knock it off you two.” she said, though a grin made its way to her lips as well.
Chapter two. The chapters will be a little short until we get really into the story (and yes it's looking like it's going to be more than 22 this time XD). As you can all tell, Harry and Draco will not be "I hate you *BAM* I LOVE YOU" this time around. There will be hardships, a love/hate relationship, and of course the cheating on each other with Antonio will stay in there (cause damn X3).

Hope you guys enjoy it.
For newbies:
Chapter one
Next Chapter coming soon.

Are you ever planning on writting more??
Tasan Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012
Perhaps. I apologize that this is a year out, response wise. I recently started working on a PhD, and that has been sucking all of my time away. I'm debating writing more on the update of Worlds Apart, and if I do, you can find it at my account. My username on that site is Tasan as well.

I've just not had the time. University is kicking my ass in all of the wrong ways. The original is up further back there, if you want to take a look at that. I prolly won't get the revamped up for a very long time.

so it's going to be a sort of "Much Ado About Nothing"/"Taming of the Shrew" relationship?
